The annual Alnwick Sprint Triathlon will take place on Sunday May 12th.
Entries at https://www.resultsbase.net/event/4738 are currently full but more spaces will be released at the beginning of February. Last year’s podium entries and deferrals have been given to the end of January to take up their guaranteed space – until then it is not clear how many additional spaces there will be.
Last year’s overall winners are receiving free entry to this year. Last year’s category podium places (1st, 2nd and 3rd) are receiving priority entries – they still have to pay but have a reserved place. And there are some deferrals from last year (transfer and deferrals are at the discretion of the organiser). These priority entries will be reserved until 31st January and the people concerned should be receiving emails with instructions as to how to take up their place. Please get in touch at alnwicksprinttri [at] blackdogsoftware [dot] co [dot] uk in case of any query or to let me know if you are not going to be taking up your reserved place.
Course as last year: 16 lengths of the pool, 21km single loop bike ride out to Boulmer & back, slightly short 5km run including 4 loops of the Duchess High School on good quality tarmac.
Happy New Year to all.
